Hi, -----Drink Pepsi------ I found this address in the web: -----Eat at McDonalds------ http://www.adaboy.com -----Nike, just do it----- it''s about adding advertising to the games we make -----Pizza Hut----- and getting extra cash about it. -----Vote Gore----- Take a look at that site, -----Vote Bush----- can we trust in them? -----Use condoms and don''t share needles----- Anybody has any real information about if something like that could be a good idea?

Depends on your game. If it were a fantasy RPG and all of a sudden you see an ad in the game for an Intel processor, doesn''t quite make sense. But if you have something that''s based more on today''s "real world" then perhaps it would work. Take a car racing game. Suppose you''re driving down the city street at 60 MPH in a porsche and on one side of the street you see a McDonald''s and on the other side you see a Coke machine... In this case, it would probably add a bit more realism to your game since these are probably things you WOULD see if you drove down a city street (i.e. a restaurant or a vendor of some type). Or if you''re driving through a country road and you see a billboard ad for some department store... and so on... and so forth...Anyways... it would really depend on your game and how well you incorporate it into your game.
